This book is about a 13-year-old girl named Ali, who finds an old photograph in the attic of her house. She recognizes two of the three children as her Aunt Dulcie and her Mom, Claire. But, she finds that a third girl has been torn out of the photo. Ali first asks her Mother, but she denies that there was a third child and insists that it was just herself and Dulcie. Ali figures she'll have time to figure out who the girl is while she's with her Aunt and younger cousin, Emma, at a small cottage in Maine.

Not long after they arrive, the girls meet Sissy. Sissy is a mean and malicious 10-year-old girl who is a bad influence on Emma, but Ali believes that Sissy knows about an incident in which a girl named Teresa Abbot drowned under mysterious circumstances in a lake by the cottage 30 years before. This was the last summer that Dulcie and Claire were there when they were children.

Strangest of all, Sissy keeps talking about that very incident. At first, Ali suspects that Sissy is trying to scare both her and Emma with a ghost story. However, she soon discovers the reason as to why Sissy is so angry. Ali finds out Sissy was the ghost of Teresa Abbott the girl who drowned in the lake, and Sissy wants Dulcie to tell the truth because Dulcie won't admit that Teresa died when Dulcie, Claire, and Sissy were in the middle of Sycamore Lake.

Sissy died because she loves an old doll, named Edith that actually belonged to Claire, and she tried to save it when Dulcie decided that no one should have it and threw it into the deep water. Desperately, Teresa jumped in to save that doll, but she drowned because they were too far from the shore. Teresa demands that Dulcie admits the truth and find her bones. Sissy tells Ali and Emma where her bones are and Dulcie tells story of how Teresa died to The Sentinel. Sissy finally got her last wishes to get buried and go to another dimension and gave Edith the doll to Emma.
